The term intermarried was used on a deed in 1838 at which time Felix Lynn was living in Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania. Intermarried meant that Catherine Lynn had married William Ramus etc.

Lineage of Felix Lynn of Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania. The immigrant (1 Generation) Peter Linn/Lynn had several children.

The oldest was (2) (John) (Doctor) Felix Lynn-1740-1809 died in Northampton, Co., PA married first Jacobina (Freever) Siegly Lynn born 22 October 1730 and died 25 March 1801. Before the end of the year Felix Lynn remarried on 20 October 1801 to Elizabeth Fluck, a widow. Her maiden name was Olewein. Elizabeth (Olewein) Fluck Lynn died in 1843. [Apparently no children by his second marriage as her will mentions her siblings.] Felix Lynn's oldest child was

(3) (Doctor) George Felix Lynn 1762-ca 1835-36 and died in Columbia Co., PA-his sons by his first marriage by Catherine (Ohl) Lynn were:

(A) Felix. I can not verify his date of birth. I found via internet. 1780-1 November 1858. If an estate was left,court records could verify heirs in Huntingdon, Co., Since, his grandfather also named Felix Lynn, died in 1809, the 1810 census should be that of Felix Lynn son of George Felix Lynn. Note: Felix Lynn son of George Felix Lynn was residing in 1830,1840 and 1850 in Huntingdon Co.,. 1830 and 1840 census records indicated he had a household with may males and females. The death of his wife is recorded in Huntingdon, Co., PA and indicated she was born in Pennsylvania and her parents were born in Germany. Her maiden name is unknown.

(B) Philip 27 February 1788 to 22 February 1857 Age 68-11-23 and his wife Sibilla 10 January 1787 to 31 May 1867. Age 80-4-21 Northampton Co., Pennsylvania.

Their mother (Catherine) died 15 May 1804 and the family buried her in the old cemetery of Christ Union Church. The following year on 29 December 1805, George Felix Lynn, widower, married Elis. Rinker. His children by his marriage to Elis. Rinker were Catherine, Mary/Maria, Caroline and Josiah Lynn.

George Felix Lynn, on 11 April 1829, while residing in the Township of Lower Saucon, Northampton County, Pennsylvania, made an agreement to purchase 121 acres in Hemlock Township, Columbia County, Pennsylvania. It was described as “beginning at a stone on the south side of Fishing Creek. He had an obligation to the widow, Elizabeth Lynn (his Stepmother) of Lower Saucon Township, Northampton County, Pennsylvania., which was released 5 May 1834. Soon after buying the property in Columbia County, Pennsylvania he and his family moved and that fall on 15 October 1829, Dr. George Felix Lynn in Hemlock Township, Columbia County, Pennsylvania penned his will which was filed 4 January 1836. The will made provisions for the sale of personal property and plantation in Hemlock Township where he resided. And empowered his executors to purchase a convenient house and lot for use of his wife and all income of said lot. After her death the lot was to be sold and money to be equally divided “amongst my four children Cathy or Catharine, Maria, Carolina and my son Josiah (as my two other sons Felix and Philip Lynn of my first wife having received their full share of my estate in my lifetime).” The next month an inventory of his estate was filed 2 February 1836. The will was to allow his son Philip Lynn reasonable extra fees out of the estate for coming such a distance to perform his duty as executor. Witnesses were John Folk and John Folk Jr. and Henry Ohl. The later was probably the brother of his first wife Catherine (Ohl) Lynn. At the time the will was probated it was noted that George Felix Lynn was of Bloom Township. Note. I’ve not located the burial place of George Felix Lynn or his second wife Elisabeth (Rinker) Lynn. We were told many early graves had been moved to make room for a high school building. Many of those stones were illegible.

In 1838, Felix Lynn of Huntingdon County and Catharine, intermarried with William Rasmus, Mary intermarried with Thomas Frey, Caroline Lynn and Josiah Lynn all of the County of Columbia being children of George Felix Lynn late of the Township of Lower Saucon in the County of Northampton deceased of the first part and Philip Lynn of the same township sold their rights to four contiguous tracts.
